Re: not impressed with esk apple
I like it myself,But its deff not one of nakhla's better cuts,Like you said I think sweet melon is probly the best cut of nakhla.
It reminds me alot of manderin its good but the flavors kinda one sided and lacks some complexity.It does have a nice green apple flavor but needs a little something mixed to it, maybee some jasmine or add it to some two apples to bring out more green apple flavor and cut down the anise a bit.
I'm Big on apple flavs I'd say its nakhla's second best apple.There'e not much difference between mizo/single/basha apple...
Maybee apple askandarany mixed 50/50 with mizo apple would be nice version of two apples
